A: Other than the suggestions made by my colleagues - I urge you to consult with a bankruptcy attorney. Some of us offer a half hour no charge consultation which may assist you in your analysis of whether it is feasible for you to pursue. Discharging student loans are very difficult and require very specific evidence.
